Not That Kind of Guy by Andie J. Christopher [arc review]

Image
I finished it.

The Last King (The Kings #1) by Katee Robert

Image
For those who don't know I run a Romance Book Club at Inklings Bookshop in Washington State. Katee Robert will (hopefully, no one wants this COVID madness to last that long), be in our store this August with a bunch of other amazing authors and I wanted to introduce my book club to her. I like a little spice on my books so although I've read her books, it was her Mafia Romance series and not this one. Well, I guess now I found another series to be hooked on, it was fab :)

The Honey-Don't List by Christina Lauren [arc review]

Image
I absolute love these ladies. Christina and Lauren are above and beyond talented and I am very happy to sit and read another title by them. The Honey-Don't List was sweet, charming, and it had its funny moments.  Another day under quarantine, another fabulous read ;)

From Alaska With Love by Ally James [arc review]

Image
Sometimes it is good to go blind into a book. From Alaska with Love was that for me. I knew it was a romance but I could not remember the blurb and didn't re-read it. It was SO GOOD! One of those easy to read, feel good romances that leaves you with a smile on your face and feeling better about the world!

Crave by Tracy Wolff [arc review]

Image
Crave was everything you would expect from an young adult paranormal romance with vampires. Remember years ago when that was popular? I guess Renee Ahidieh with Beautiful and now Tracy Wolff with Crave are trying to bring it back. I don't know about you, but I am all in for it!

Undone (Start Up in the City #3) by Kelly Rimmer [arc review]

Image
I wrote this review a few times and stopped. Why? Because I love Kelly Rimmer's books and yet, this just didn't work for me. It is such a horrible feeling having to sit down and write a not so positive review for a writer you love. Oh well... it needs to be done...

How to cure a Book Slump & Review for Into the Dreaming (Highlander #8) by Karen Marie Moning

Image
How to get over a Book Slump? Those who read a lot get asked that question rather often. I have 2 tricks: the first is to pick up a book by a favorite author that is of a different genre to the one you previously read (or at least a different sub-genre). I find it is best if it is something very different than the book that put you on a book slump to start.  The second is to always have a long series you love going on the background. I am currently reading 3 paranormal series. But here is the thing, I do not read as the new books come out. I read only when I need a trusted book to get me out of a slump. This series is a little old now and the other two are still ongoing (Black Dagger Brotherhood and Bewitched and Bewildered). All that brings us to Into the Dreaming, book 8 and last in this series. I have not read The Highlander series in order though, I still have 2 to go- eventually! 
I believe this book is 14 years old now. Time flies hey? Karen Marie Moning's Highlander series …
